Hawks All-Star Saturday Night Recap
Hall-of-Famer Dominique Wilkins, the former Atlanta Hawk, helped Team Bosh win the Sears Shooting Stars competition during State Farm All-Star Saturday Night. He was paired with Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat and Swin Cash of the Chicago Sky on one of the two Eastern Conference teams in the competition. Wilkins sunk the halfcourt shot in the championship round against Team Westbrook that eventually earned Team Bosh the victory. Back when different cities competed in Shooting Stars, Team Atlanta (comprised of Al Horford, Coco Miller, and Steve Smith) took home the 2011 trophy. Wilkins made it the second time in three years that the winning team at this competition has included a representative for the Hawks. Congratulations to Wilkins and Team Bosh.
Jeff Teague also was a part of the Saturday festivities, where he had a tough going at the Taco Bell Skills Challenge. He did, however, beat nine-time NBA All-Star Gary Payton in a game of H.O.R.S.E.
